Thonet no. 1 chairs, pair.


  • Thonet bentwood furniture is not only beautiful aesthetically, its story is beautiful too.  The birth of 'design' in furniture, it is little wonder that architects and artists such as Le Corbusier and Picasso all loved Thonet's bentwood chairs and furniture.
  • Incredibly important in the history of Thonet, I'm very happy to be able to offer this very rare pair of Thonet no. 1 chairs, which have been authenticated by Thonet themselves.   With the original label in place (label '1b') which we know was used from 1866 until 1882, we can date these chairs to within 16 years.
  • The caning is the original, these chairs are in totally authentic condition and have not been changed of modified in any way.  There is some slight damage to one of the caned seats.
  • Also know as n.1, nr1 and Number One chairs or Stuhl.
  • I can send more detailed photos and information of these antique chairs for sale upon request.
  • I would prefer that these were collected, but we can arrange specialist shipping worldwide, lets discuss that -
